Upgrade time !
Since I now have two cracked rear springs and the arches are almost resting on the tyres --- I decided to upgrade rather than replace standard springs. WHY ? --- well standard springs come in at several differennt prices , anything from £70 to over £100 each !!!! So I've bitten the bullet and ordered BILSTEIN B6 shocks plus EIBACH PROKIT springs all round . Mad ??? possibly , but when the Eibach springs are 135 euros for 4 , it makes you start looking at shocks as well . They are 129 euros front and 125 euros rear -- multiply that lot by 0.86 for sterling and the upgrade looks a bargain , at least when they come from ALFISTI.NET
Not ordered but on the cards are Powerflex adjustable top bushes for the front plus the huge lower rear bush , to replace that stupid sloppy rubber one which makes any adjustment to the front end a total waste of time.Even a new one moves around like a jelly !
In for cambelt Thursday too -- phew !!
